Images of the new M3 (F80) have surfaced ahead of its Summer 2013 release date. Expect a lower ride height, blade front bumper and other cues such as M3-badged vents on its flanks and mirrors. The new M3 and M4 will be powered by a 3.0 liter six-cylinder twin turbo engine that dishes out 450 horsepower, 30 more than its predecessor. A 0-62 mph time of 4.3 seconds is currently being mumbled with a top speed limited to 155 mph, though that can be extended to 180 mph with the limiter removed.
The new M3 is rumored to make its debut at the LA Auto Show later this year, alongside the M4, the new badge for the coupe version. (via Auto Express)
